Chapter 1

Kai gritted his teeth in anger, despite the fact that he was also freezing to death. He gripped his arms hastily as his teeth began to chatter. Suddenly, he felt someone wrapping a blanket around his back.

"You're not going to get any ice cream?" Kai asked, though his words were choppy. It was a day full of no crimes and no evil; another day off. 

Cole shook his head and took a seat by Kai. "I should've stopped them before they pushed you into the water," the Black Ninja let out a small sigh and looked down to the ground. "But they were just -"

The bell chimed and the rest of the group walked out of the door.

Zane didn't come out with anything. Kai's eyes lit up and he gazed from one cone to another. He wished he could've gotten some, but it wasn't such a good idea if he was already cold enough. Although the heat on his back did feel nice.

"Aww man! This ice cream is soooo good!" Jay shouted, jumping up and down. He licked his frozen treat and hummed sweetly.

Lloyd bit out of his cone. "I'm just happy there's no trouble today! I wish everyday was like this!"

Nya stood over by her brother. "You don't look too happy," she told him.

"Well y - yeah... L - l - look at m - me! I'm fr - freezing!"

Cole stood up. "We should be heading back soon. I meant, I feel like going back to the Bounty." He helped Kai stand.

"Just a few more stops! Please?? Let's go to a bakery!" Jay grinned widely and took off, still enjoying his ice cream.

Kai groaned. When was this day going to end? "I just wish this day would end already!"

"You shouldn't say things like that Kai," Zane said, facing his brother.

"Why not? It's completely fine?"

"Kai, once this day is gone, it's gone! You can't relive it. Try to enjoy the rest of the day, okay pal?" Cole noted and patted Kai on the back. Kai looked ahead and saw that both Nya and Lloyd were walking ahead with Jay.

"I was shoved into cold water! One random kid bumped into me with a toy airplane! Jay elbowed me way too hard that it gave me a sore arm! I accidentally stubbed my toe! And now what's next? This is the worst day ever!" Kai complained and gripped the ends of his hair.

As they entered the bakery, Kai felt himself getting warmer.

Cole sat Kai down in a booth. Zane sat down next to Kai.

"Let's just get to know each other better," Cole suggested.

"I already know a lot about the two of you," Kai said showing no sympathy towards Cole's idea. The Black Ninja frowned.

"But maybe there's a little more we all can share about... And I mean all of us," he added when Jay and the others came back. They took a table beside the booth.

"Sorry I pushed you into the water, Kai. I was just playing," Jay confessed and snickered softly, as Kai stared at him intensely. Jay took a bite from his cookie.

Cole looked at Kai. "Take this as a day to bond with Jay. Who knows, there could be some things that'd you'd never expected from a guy like him. Plus -"

"I get it alright? Get to know each other, bond with my friends, blah, blah, blah - and I know my friends so well already! You're only making this day worse, Cole!"

"I was just trying to help," he said and stood up, walking away.

They all watched as Cole headed for the restrooms. "Wow, Kai, since when did you start acting this way?"

"Ever since the beginning of this day! You threw a pillow at my face, begging for me to wake up so we could start the day early... Really early! Then, you elbowed me! My arm is super sore now, thanks to you! And my toe hurts as well because you pushed me to the side! And, you shoved me into the water, even when I repetitively said NO!"

Jay blinked. "Look, Kai, some of those things were just complete accidents (two)... And it's not like I planned for those accidents to happen. It just... Happened! Its how this day was meant to go."

Zane stood up next, interrupting the feud. "I will check up on Cole," he said.

"Kai, like Jay said, he didn't mean for you to stub your toe or hurt your arm, it was all an accident. Just, try to relax for the rest of the day. Please?" Nya told her brother softly, trying to make him feel better.

Kai didn't answer and threw the blanket over his face.

Lloyd stole a cookie from Jay.


Back at the Bounty, Kai laid wide awake in bed. Thank goodness the day is over, he thought and let out a sigh of relief.

He flipped his head to the side and saw Jay sleeping happily under Cole's bunk. He looked underneath him and saw Zane fast asleep too. As was Lloyd.

He could hear Cole murmuring things to himself. Kai felt his stomach twist. He shouldn't have hurt Cole that way, especially because he was his brother.

Kai turned to his side. "Tomorrow is the start of a fresh new day... And I can't believe I'm saying this, but Garmadon, please act quick."

Liam Butler: I am Liam Butler, and I wrote this novel. If that sounds like an AA admission, that's because it sure feels like one.
